So, we finally got the internets at home last night. Well, we got it on Saturday, but we got our wireless set up last night and I was finally able to use my precious lap top again. I have no pictures of the house yet, but soon - I fucking promise (yeah, just like pictures of Hawaii, right!?)!
Anyhow - I signed up for Hulu Plus - so I can watch my favorite TV shows on our TV through the PlayStation 3 using the Hulu App... ya dig?
I also signed up for a Zumba class through community education - I'll be taking it with a couple of girlfriends once a week starting in roughly a month. I'm super excited to do it - super scared too. Zumba is a dance based workout. I don't really dance, other than in the clubs (and that's more like dirty dancing than anything else) - but I'm excited to learn something new while I get my workout on. Because of the move and trying to save money, I've cancelled my gym membership based on the acquisition of EA Sport Active for the Wii and a few other workout things I can do at home. I figure it's better to do the stuff at home, even if I have to buy stuff once, over paying monthly for the gym. Now I've just got to get the damn Wii hooked up and get my ass moving. Spring being right around the corner, I hope to start taking advantage of walking outdoors.
Anyhow - the zumba class is going to be interesting...
So this weekend I went out for a friend birthday - Steve and I just met up for a cocktail or two (and by that I mean, I had none and Steve had many). Not the point ... I was talking with someone I've known on a casual level for several years - we gots to talking and he said to me "Angela, you become more and more reserved every time I see you. What happened to your craziness?" This made me sad. I don't even know what to say about it.
I immediately jumped on the defense and tried to come up with some excuse... oh, blame it on the fact that I have a boyfriend now - he didn't accept that reply. So I toyed around with a few more and finally settled on the fact that maybe I'm just growing up... which he seemed to congratulate me on. I wasn't looking for congratulations; I was looking for something I've apparently lost. It left me feeling out of sorts and, while I know it's okay to grow up, I really hope I haven't lost my true self.
My weekend was spent shopping at Lowe's, comparing paint samples, and having lunch with some family... 5-6-7 years ago it would have been spent drinking and dancing the night away at the club or whichever bar had good music and a dance floor.
I know it's okay to grow up... it just kind of hits you like a ton of bricks when someone calls you out on being lame.
